These are the last NUG Delmonte 81D offspring that will be on offer, and it is no surprise that all three of them are out of FGAF WowEffect daughters. We really liked this cross, as it simply seemed to work whether it be bull or heifer progeny. A full sibling to Pixie was one of my favourites in our 2021 bull string and was selected by Conestoga Farms at the Red Deer County Bull Sale. Pixie shares that big-volume build, with heavy pigmentation and a very strong maternal profile. As we shared earlier, our ‘P-line’ is very popular (Eight ‘D’s’ are scheduled to calve at APLX in 2023 vs. seven ‘P’s – pretty cool on a herd of 50 cows!), and originated with our foundation acquisition of Spruceburn Pauline in 2009. Her descendants have proven to be very popular, and have topped both our Equation (Penny, Pippa) and Red Deer Bull Sale strings (Wrangler). Pixie’s maternal sister, Applecross Paprika, was selected by Bonchuk Farms at Equation 2020. Look for the broody, high capacity (ironically named!) Pixie to carry on the family tradition in Red Deer.
Pixie was selected by Egan Home Farms, Kelvin and Ory Egan, Low, Quebec for $10,000.
